Papers: Ince won't be cheap

Fergie must spend big to land Ince
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has warned Manchester United that they will not get top scorer Thomas Ince on the cheap. Ince, 20, has struck six goals in the Championship and made his England Under-21 debut this season, form that has alerted Sir Alex Ferguson among others. However, Holloway, who believes the forward can emulate his father Paul by playing for United and England, insists he will not let Ince go easily. "I can't keep anybody. I am working with them to get them to a Man United or Arsenal," Holloway said. "That's what I want to do for these boys. I have got to keep turning them out and that's how it is. If we are not successful this year, do  I want to stand in his way? Probably not. But we deserve a fair amount of money for him."

Most of the papers run quotes from our Patrice Evra story about the importance of both Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney to the Reds.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail claims Roy Hodgson told passengers on a London tube that Rio Ferdinand has reached "the end of the road" regarding his England career. The England manager is due to discuss his squad at a press conference at Wembley on Thursday morning and Ferdinand is not expected to be among those selected for this month’s World Cup double header against San Marino and Poland.
